BBS Lighting Debuts First LED Remote Phosphor Light Bank System

News Release After pioneering highly efficient and color accurate Remote Phosphor LED lighting, BBS Lighting marries this technology to a new form factor, creating the first Bank LED Remote Phosphor lights. Bank systems have long been popular due to their versatility and convenient form factor. BBS has vastly improved on the classic light bank by adding the benefits of Remote Phosphor technology in the Pipeline® 4-Bank, 3’ and 4’ systems. By incorporating Remote Phosphor technology in the new 4-Banks, the fixtures deliver a 95+ TLCI (Television Lighting Consistency Index). With traditional LEDs, color output begins to drift over time due to heat damage to the phosphor layer doped directly on the bulbs. Remote Phosphor Pipes feature a phosphor layer positioned away from the LEDs so they remain brighter, higher fidelity, with a consistently high TLCI over years of use. Plus, they are rated at 50,000 hours, so the hassles of lamp changes are not an issue. Pipeline cylindrical Pipes each have a rugged aluminum flat channel with 1/10th-inch thick remote phosphor covering to handle rough treatment without breakage. Pipeline 4-Banks house BBS’ rugged, 3 or 4-foot long, 1-inch diameter LED Pipes that provide light emission of over 1000 lumens per foot (12,000 lumens from the 3’ and 16000 lumens the 4’). Cool running, they power off of a 48V power supply to provide smooth dimming all the way down to zero. Utilizing the built-in 4-channel control, Pipeline Banks are fully dimmable (100% to zero) without color shift or flicker. The control offers 8- or 16-bit… Read more...
